. .. there would be a change in mr. dsm point, that that might affect america. as the senate are not aware that any change to the treaty in order to go into effect and has any impact on the united states would require the nascent consent? without the advice and consent of the senate, no change could possibly impact united states. >> outhouses the bureaucrats running the program would have clarification word is otherwise vague. the point i am making here is we don't really need to do that when we have her hearing. i understand there's a difference of opinion on this and a lot of motion. i found this morning's roll call magazine, all the people find appeared with the distinguished senator from massachusetts. it doesn't say anything in the articles that certainly attacks the emotions of individuals. so yes, i am not satisfied they would not interfere and do their clarification to change the intent. >> we've taken care of our problem here. >> the mr. president, it's important in this kind of debate as to make a judgment as senators that we base our judgment on facts than on the reality. the senator has

"ac 360" starts right now. >> piers, thanks. good evening, everyone. we begin as we do every night, keeping them honest. looking for facts, not supporting democrats or republicans. our goal is just report, finding the facts, finding the truth. we did that last week. again, the more we look into it, the more we find people in powerful and influential places saying things that just don't square with the facts. it's about a u.n. treaty that failed to be ratified by the senate. a treaty that was meant to encourage other countries to be more like the u.s. on equal rights of the disabled. if other countries adopted better treatment of their disabled citizens, the idea is that disabled americans who visit or live in other countries would also benefit. 125 countries ratified the treaty. it was supported by george bush, signed by the current president, and has support
is that violent rhyme in -- crime in america has been cut in half since the tough mandatory prison sentences were instituted. the country is much safer because hard core criminals are doing hard time. that's a fact. no one should feel sorry for killers, rapists and drug pushers. now, because i do commentary like this, laying out the progressive agenda, i'm a big threat to them. listen to this incredible sound bite from committed left wing guy harry bell belafonte he says people like me who oppose president obama and liberal agenda on some things should be dealt with. >> what fascinates me is that in the phase of millions of americans expressing their desire the whole political establishment defining its game that there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to barack obama and i don't know what more they want. the only thing left for barack obama to do is to organize a third world dictator and put all these guys in jail. violating the american desire. >> bill: i guess violating the america
. >>> also, let me tell you about the biggest success story in latin america. it is not brazil. it's actually much closer to home. then, as the world watches the arab world struggle with democracy, we'll take a look at the problem from an unusual perspective, upside down. how does a country turn away from democracy as eastern europe did 50 years ago? i'll talk to pulitzer-prize winning historian ann applebalm. we focus on decision making. in the depths of the financial crisis, the obama administration had an almost impossible choice -- save chrysler by injecting billions of taxpayer dollars, or let it fail and lose perhaps a million jobs. car czar steve rattner gives us a fascinating inside look. for viewers in the united states, we have a special tonight at 8:00 and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific called "tough decisions." >>> but, first, here's my take. announcing that he would send proposals on reducing gun violence in america to congress, president obama this week mentioned a number of sensible gun control measures. but he also paid homage to the washington conventional wisdom about the ma
.n. mandate how parents of disabled kids in america cared for their children. americans among the center is echoing that center is mike lee of utah. keeping them hahnsh, though, when i asked him to specify how this u.n. influence might manifest itself, here's the answer he gave. >> can you name any other u.n. treaty that has forced changes in u.s. law? >> i didn't come prepared to cite supreme court precedence on this point but it's a well -- >> what you're saying is hypothetical. you're using a bunch of hypot t hypotheticals saying this is going to force abortion rights for people overseas. i mean, some groups are saying children with glasses are going be taken from their parents. you're using all these very scary hypotheticals. you can't even cite one case where a u.n. treaty has ever impacted u.s. law? >> nowhere of one person who is saying children with glasses are going to be taken away tromtheir parents. the article 7 interest is that the best interests of the child would be injected into the decision of how to care for a child. >> again, you can't name one u.n. treaty that has ev

sector workers in america work for the companies his taxes focus on. bill: should we expect anything different from americans ahead of the next election? >> reporter: they stuck with the general limited themes of the republicans but they were trying to appeal to a wider audience. most of congressman ryan's speech included building a safety net. and ryan made clear he's proud of the campaign he and mitt romney ran. but he also subtly and indirectly disstansd himself from the comment romney made about the 47% of the americans perceived to be democratic because they rely on the government. >> both parties tend to divide america into our voters and their voters. republicans must steer clear of that trap. we need to speak to the aspirations -- we must speak to the aspirations and anxieties of every american. i believe we can turn on the engines of upper mobility so that no one is left out from the promise of america. >> reporter: senator rubio said he thinks the promise of tomorrow is with hotel workers, landscapers and late-night january towards. senator rubio says he doesn't thing lower

to the people who live in the united states of america. why? because we share the same values, the same principles, the same heritage and the same enemies. because we are in the middle east today, dean attacked we ask ourselves why these people against the jewish nation in the middle east. not because of the lens we so-called occupied. it is the value we are working upon them in israel and the values of our democracy following very carefully their election here in the united states and beginning to be interesting. but we do father and we do to the american people and the american values. sometimes too much. for example today of independence in israel, a big celebration you'll find people in the israeli flag and the american flag. i don't like it. i put on my car only the israeli flag. why do people do with? to democracy and values of the american people. one of my main point in my book is israel is not america. even though we love america, we are not america and we cannot make mistakes because if you make a mistake, you pay a price, but you are able to correct it. if israel makes the mi
you, mr. chairman. good one of you tell me how much the united states of america is spending on the congo now, both military and nonmilitary aid? >> the total assistance package to the democratic republic of the congo is running approximately $480 million. that is the total package that includes both the military and economic and humanitarian assistance that we provide to the country. >> does united states of america have a national security interest in the congo? if so, what is it? >> who do have interests there. >> a national security interest? >> we have an interest in helping to do as much as we can to maintain the stability. that can have a direct impact on the united states. the largest single u.n. peacekeeping program in the world is in the democratic republic of the congo. we spend and appropriate some 25% to 26% of what is authorized by the un for this program. it consumes an enormous amount of time. we have to respond to humanitarian crises, in the region -- >> mr. carson, we have limited time. it seems to me that the interest you have described would mean that the

in your own companies but in the well-being of america, there are a lot of patriots in this room and people who care deeply about not only your bottom lines but also the future of this country. you've shown that over the last four years, we've gone through as difficult an economic period as we've seen in most of our lifetimes, and we've emerged not yet where we need to be, but we've certainly made progress and the reason we've made progress in part has been because of the outstanding management and productivity and gains and efficiencies and xet i haveness that you've been able to achieve in each and every one of your companies. as i've said it to the small groups let me repeat it to the large group. i am passionately rooting for your success because if the companies in this room are doing well, then small businesses and medium sized businesses up and down the chain are doing well. if the companies in this room are doing well, then folks get jobs, consumers get confidence, and we're going to be able to compete around the world. the good news is that, despite the extraordinary cha

of the united states of america by defaulting on payments or at least to threaten that. this is not a very popular position among the public. in fact, they will be -- i think it's a suicide mission that they are on, that the american people will make them pay the price. i really don't understand their strategy. >> margie, if you look at the fact that in the 2011 debt ceiling battle senator mitch mcconnell had this to say. he said, i think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage. you might take a chance at shooting. most of us didn't think that. what we did learn is this. it's a hostage that's worth ransoming. and it focuses the congress on something that must be done. now, if this was their thought and attitude in 2011, do you think that's what we're dealing with, that kind of feeling, attitude of holding the hostage for ransom now? >> i hope not. it's bad for -- it's certainly bad for the economy and it's also been bad for the economy brand. it's the reason that they were unsuccessful in the polls and by two to one if we don't reach a deal for the fiscal cliff

[video clip] >> punch me, straggle mae, take things from me. >> we're starting to see people coming out and talk about their experiences of this phenomenon that some have experienced and had no words for other than growing up. people were starting to stand back and say, "this is not a no part of growing up." there was a moment where there is a possibility for change. we decided to start the film out of that feeling that voices were bubbling up to the surface it to say, this is not something we can accept in our culture. >> she has gathered essays and stories together in "bully." like us on facebook. >> the white house was very controversial, as most things in america were. l'enfant designed washington city. there was a competition and he submitted the design for a palace. americans were not having a palace. it was not particularly awe- inspiring. in fact, in 1821, a european diplomat told the congress
to make america stronger. we can rebuild infrastructure. we think those are good investments in america and we think we can afford them. >> let's look at an outline of what republicans said they heard in the meeting. $1.6 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years. $50 billion in stimulus spending right now. $400 billion in unspecified medicare cuts. over the next ten years. and then, permanent authority to increase the debt limit the president wants that authority. they look at that 1.6 trillion in revenue and say it's twice as much you get from raising taxes on the wealthy and much more than democrats would ever accept in the senate. that's why they say this is not serious. >> but let me start with what you said, we're making the threat of default. we propose to take an idea that senator mcconnell proposed in the summer of 2011 and extend that. what that does, it lifts the cloud of default over the economy. the president has increased the debt limit. congress has a chance to express approval of that. it's a very smart way by the senator with impeccable credentials to lift this
